The Maverick's Journey is a collection of sixty poems. While writing poetry about what the poetess saw and felt, she started finding herself. New feelings or maybe latent feelings began to surface and totally new views about things started coming to her mind and so she calls it a journey. Out of confusion, beautiful verses were born when she started jotting down the feelings of her new journey. The first poem is totally about her mind’s journey titled, “My New Journey” and the rest are of her travels and her mental journey to being a more superior human being. The poems have been divided into five sections - Happiness, Wonder, Transition, Joy and Love.

Book Excerpt:

Maury Maverick was possibly the first liberal United States Congressman from Texas to achieve national and even international stature. A dedicated Democrat, he was ready to attack Franklin D. Roosevelt whenever he felt that Roosevelt was flagging in his enthusiasm for reform. He was honest to the point of rudeness, and he belonged to the "damn the torpedoes" class that pulled ahead regardless of political consequences. He was at home with the literate—he was a prodigious writer and speaker—but always ready to puncture their pretensions. And he could cuss with sailors, pecan shellers, and any breed of saloon keeper. Put all that together with a short, stocky, bulldog frame, a fierce face and a voice to match, and you have one of the nation's more colorful political figures.

Maverick's Baby is book 1 of The Silent Angels MC trilogy. Books 2 and 3, Maverick's Blood and Maverick's Storm are available everywhere now! I'm pregnant with Maverick's baby. There are some things that should never be done. Like sleeping with a murder suspect. And there are some things that are even worse… Like getting pregnant with his baby. "Laced up" might've been a good way to describe me. Shoes shined, shirt crisp – the pride and joy of my city's police force. And I liked my cases the way I wore my uniform: Nice and neat. But the world doesn't always work that way. It's messy. Chaotic. Wild. Just like Maverick Mace. I said I was proud – he made me beg. I said I was chaste – he made me dirty. I said I was independent – he made me his and his alone. And I loved every second of it. But if getting involved with a suspect in a mysterious, crime-world murder was bad… Then what happened next was far, far worse. It's not just myself I've put in trouble. There's also a baby I can barely protect, not to mention a dangerous man I barely know. And the killers coming to end us all. Maverick made me his… And no one takes what belongs to him.

Book Excerpt:

Rules for Mavericks: A Manifesto for Dissident Creatives by Phil Beadle is a guidebook to leading a creative life, to being a renaissance dilettante, to infesting your art form with other art forms, to taking a stand against mediocrity, to rejecting bloodless orthodoxies, to embracing your own pretension and, most of all, to dealing with your failure(s). ‘If you make any stand against power, then power will stand against and on you. And it will do so with centuries of experience and techniques in how to do so effectively: you will be painted as barbaric, dismissed as stupid and insane, be told to know your place. Most of all, you will be termed maverick.’ This genre-flouting manifesto is written by someone who has achieved and has failed in more than one field. As a Guardian columnist, award-winning teacher, award-winning broadcaster, author, editor, singer, songwriter, producer and public speaker, Phil Beadle knows a bit about leading a life producing good work across a variety of platforms. In this elegantly written book he glides and riffs around the idea of maverick nature, examines the processes of producing good work in creative fields and broaches the techniques that orthodoxies use to silence dissident voices. It is a ‘how to dream’ book, a ‘how to create’ book, a ‘how to work’ book and a ‘how to fail productively’ book; it is an examination of the many accusations that any dissident creative will face over a long career stirring things up, a guide to dealing with these with grace and a study in how to make creativity work for you. Rules for Mavericks is for anyone who wants to live and work more creatively and successfully. Contents include: Introduction: ‘maverick nature’, 1 Rules, 2 Starting off, 3 Failure, 4 Creativity and the process of production, 5 Work, 6 The realm(s) of appearance, 7 Performance, 8 Change, 9 Renaissance dilettantism, 10 Writing (and reading too), 11 On being reviewed.

Book Excerpt:

Maverick was a strong and outgoing blond-haired, blue-eyed sixteen-year-old that had the world at his fingertips, or so his family thought. A life full of friends, laughter, and love, Maverick succeeded in absorbing and influencing the world around him. The youngest of three, Maverick was protected as he was the source of endless entertainment and teenage independence-based challenges. Maverick died by suicide on June 17, 2016. Three days after his father's birthday and two days before Father's Day. Walks in the Dark is the real story written from Maverick's father's perspective honed over months of introspection on very early morning walks, education, interactions with other grieving parents, and long talks with his wife, Tracey, Maverick's mom. A story about the short life and untimely death of Maverick, his amazingly tight bond with his mother, as well as the processes his family employs in attempting to understand how this could happen, and to accept life without their Maverick.

Book Excerpt:

"Poignant . . . Powerful . . . Beautifully captures the threshold experience of the new immigrant, where the past is not yet a memory." —The New York Times Book Review Acclaimed writer Julia Alvarez’s beloved first novel gives voice to four sisters as they grow up in two cultures. The García sisters—Carla, Sandra, Yolanda, and Sofía—and their family must flee their home in the Dominican Republic after their father’s role in an attempt to overthrow brutal dictator Rafael Trujillo is discovered. They arrive in New York City in 1960 to a life far removed from their existence in the Caribbean. In the wondrous but not always welcoming U.S.A., their parents try to hold on to their old ways as the girls try find new lives: by straightening their hair and wearing American fashions, and by forgetting their Spanish. For them, it is at once liberating and excruciating to be caught between the old world and the new. Here they tell their stories about being at home—and not at home—in America. Julia Alvarez’s new novel, Afterlife, is available now.

Book Excerpt:

Once upon a time in Texas . . . there were liberal activists of various stripes who sought to make the state more tolerant and more tolerable. David Richards was one of them. In this fast-paced, often humorous memoir, he remembers the players, the strategy sessions, the legal and political battles, and the wins and losses that brought significant gains in civil rights, voter rights, labor law, and civil liberties to the people of Texas from the 1950s to the 1990s. In his work as a lawyer, Richards was involved in cases covering voters’ rights (the creation of single-member districts to address the historic exclusion of minority voters), school finance reform (to address inequities in school funding), and a myriad of civil liberties and free speech cases. In telling these stories, he vividly evokes the “glory days” of Austin liberalism, when a “who’s who” of Texas activists plotted strategy at watering holes such as Scholz Garden and the Armadillo World Headquarters or on raft trips down the Rio Grande and Guadalupe Rivers. Likewise, he offers vivid portraits of liberal politicians from Ralph Yarborough to Ann Richards (his former wife), progressive journalists such as Molly Ivins and the Texas Observer staff, and the hippies, hellraisers, and musicians who all challenged Texas’s conservative status quo. Everyone fascinated by Texas politics and liberal activism in the last half of the twentieth century will enjoy this book. Written with flair and an insider’s insights, it records “a sweeter time when a free-associating bunch of ragtag Texans took on the establishment at a variety of junctures,” as Richards put it.
